RashiMessianic Jewish Rabbinate has been expanding its online course offerings of late, resulting in the availability of faculty positions in the following departments:

    – candidate could take on additional courses if he or she wishes
  • Department Head/Professor of B’rit Chadasha

    – candidate should be able to approach the books of the B’rit Chadasha from a Messianic Jewish perspective

  • Professor of Languages
    – courses available include Modern Hebrew (HEB-401), and all Koine Greek courses.
    – if candidate is proficient in Ugaritic, Syriac, or Coptic (Sahidic) and wishes to take on any of those courses, they can be appropriated to the candidate as well.

    – candidate should be able to exhibit deeper than passing study in Talmud.

  • Department Head/Professor of Practical Rabbinics
    – all courses are available at this time, though some of the 200-level courses are currently in development.
    – candidate should be well-versed in Biblical counseling (as opposed to psychological/psychiatric methods).

All open courses have yet to be developed, and the candidate selected would have freedom to develop the course as he or she sees fit, including selection of textbooks and creation of supplementary course content (audio, video, handouts, etc.). Administration reserves the right to approve the final syllabus and any tools selected before course launch, but will work with the faculty member to reach a mutually-agreeable platform.
